Grades are great except for one prereq!

  1. 0
    I'm in the process of applying for fall 2013 BSN programs (NYU, Stony Brook, Drexel, Thomas Jefferson, Binghamton) and am really confused. I did well in majority of my classes except for chemistry II.

    A+P 1: B+
    A+P 2: A
    Gen. Psych: A
    Abnormal Psych: A
    Micro: B
    Gen. Chem 1: B-
    Gen. Chem 2: C!!

    I'm going to be finishing my prereqs this semester (Sociology, developmental psych, org. chem) but am now wondering should i even apply to these schools? my overall GPA is a 3.6, the chemistry brought it down from a 3.75.

    I volunteer and a top hospital in NYC and do psychology research, I feel confident but just don't want to pursue these schools and be rejected because of one class.

    Should i still apply? do i still have a chance?

    Of course you should still apply! One C is okay, I promise. I have a 3.5 cumulative and got in to the two schools I applied to.

    You'll be fine, still apply! Many school's hold extra weight on the sciences, but all of your sciences are fine except one, so you'll be fine. Apply, and good luck to you!

    Don't let it hold you back. Your overall GPA is still great! Go for it

    Before opening this I thought you failed a class or something! You still have a 3.6 GPA (which is great!). Don't forget you still have 3 classes left and if you get a A in them it will boost your GPA back up. So don't be too discouraged!

    I know! the waiting is the worst part! I hate that some schools don't give you a decision till may. I think I'm going to give in the Drexel deposit just incase the other schools are late with the letters. Best of luck to you!
